LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Britney Spears has obtained a restraining order against former manager Sam Lutfi and ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib.
Access Hollywood has learned that the pop princess’ lawyers had a Monday court date but went in early, on Friday, to acquire the injunctions.
In court papers seen by Access, Britney — through her conservator, father Jamie Spears — has asked for protection for herself and her family against the two men, who were associated with the star during her tumultuous breakdown over a year ago.
She also received a restraining order against Jon Jay Eardley, an attorney who once claimed to be working on behalf of Britney and attempted to move her conservatorship case into federal court. The restraining orders are temporary and will last until a hearing on February 23.
According to the court papers, Lufti has “evaded service” of the restraining order for 20 days “despite intensive efforts… to locate him.”
Lufti allegedly moved in with Britney shortly after their meeting in October 2007. A temporary restraining order was filed against him on February 1, 2008, the date Britney’s conservatorship was established. According to the papers, Britney “continues to communicate” with Ghalib, a member of the paparazzi, sending him her whereabouts so his people can film her. Further, the papers allege that the three men are “working in concert to disrupt the conservatorship, with an utter disregard for Ms. Spears’ health and well being.”
Britney remains under the conversatorship of her father.
In happier news, the star is currently rehearsing for a tour in support of her latest album, the chart-topping “Circus,” which recently went platinum.
